  • About me: I’m a Mum, overthinker and ex primary school teacher. I love reading, music (from Beethoven to Taylor Swift to jazz and most things in between – that’s why music therapy was a perfect-fit career choice for me!), theatre, and walks in nature. Outnumbered by boys at home (2 small ones, a husband and a dog), my weekends usually consist of not much of the above but plenty of football, Lego building and Fifa on the Playstation. Hailing from the UK, I worked in Qatar and Abu Dhabi as a teacher in my late 20s but once I met my husband, having kids brought us back to the UK where I retrained in music therapy. I started my blog in the runup to our relocation in Singapore, hoping to document our travels as a family and help someone else along the way who might be having the same mad panic as me or might need some travel tips. I'm now enjoying freelance writing, piano teaching, online tutoring and volunteering with community music.
